Mitochondrial small heat-shock protein enhances thermotolerance in tobacco plants.

Abstract

To clarify the role of mitochondrial small heat-shock protein (MT-sHSP) in the heat-shock response, we introduced the tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) MT-sHSP gene under the control of the 35S promoter into tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), and examined the thermotolerance of the transformed plants. Irrespective of the orientation, sense or antisense, of the… (More)
